Week Five – Day 5
Read and SOAP Galatians 2:20
I have been crucified with Christ. It is no longer I who live, but Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. (ESV)
I have been crucified with Christ [that is, in Him I have shared His crucifixion]; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body I live by faith [by adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting] in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me. (AMP)
O/A – Emmanuel – God with us. Christ is IN ME! After a week of thinking of God with us, I come to this realization. He is with me. He will never leave me. I can’t run or hide from Him. I have His presence. I have His promise. I have His provision. He lives – in me. He gave Himself – for me.
How should that affect how I live today? My decisions – with Christ living in me, is this something I should do? My thoughts – with His presence, I can keep them pure. My actions – I can’t run or hide from Him, so my actions are seen by Him. My worries – He IS my provision. My concerns – He promised to never leave me. Each step, each decision, each thought, each action – the life I live NOW I live by FAITH (adhering to, relying on, and completely trusting in) in the Son of God – who loves me and gave Himself for me!
P – Father God – You are with me. You are in me. Live through me – so that I can truly live today. May my thoughts, my decisions, my actions, my life – be glorifying to You today. Help me to live in full realization of Your presence, Your provision, Your promise, and the Person of Jesus Christ – living in me! AMEN.
